Interesting, complex character study
7 July 2013 | by (US) – See all my reviews

An interesting character study of the film-maker's maternal grandfather. The man was a stranger not only to his grandson, but even it seems to those who knew him well. A Jewish man from Egypt, he seemed to feel most at home in the world with his Japanese business partners.

Comprised almost entirely of old home movies and still photos, with overlaid with voice overs of family and friends, it is a portrait an enigma; beloved by his business associates, but resented by his family, who felt ignored and forgotten. Autocratic at home, gregarious while playing at being a diplomat. And maybe even a little crazy.

Beautifully made, it gets us deeply involved in the riddle of a total stranger, even if it always stays , like the man, slightly distanced.
